"The support programme was full of interesting information that was relevant to me. Everyone's condition is different, but when you have to scratch you have to do it, causing discomfort and embarrassment. Since COVID I have been unable to see my consultant or receive my phototherapy but the programme has been a big help. Thank you." Wendy (Jul 20)
